Auvi PHIP65 Dual Mode Cordless Phone
The advent of VoIP services like Skype certainly ushered about a brand new era in communications, where an entry-level computer coupled with a broadband connection is more than enough to provide you with the necessary tools to hold long distance conversations with someone else across the globe without forking out a cent. This means you kiss goodbye to monstrously high phone bills at the end of the month. But does that make the regular house phone obsolete? Not quite yet, as there are still plenty of older folks out there who do not even know how to operate a computer, let alone a cellphone, hence their reliance on the traditional landline to keep in touch.
This is where the Auvi PHIP65 Dual Mode Cordless Phone comes in, combining the best of both worlds. This handset is based on DECT technology that enhances sound quality whilst reducing the amount of interference with 802.11a/b/g wireless networks, miscellanous home appliances, and Bluetooth devices. You can use up to 4 of these handsets in each household, which should be more than sufficient for the average home unless you’re living in a mansion. That means you won’t have any problem receiving regular phone calls as well as those made by a VoIP service like Skype.
The PHIP Dual Mode Cordless Phone comes with an integrated speakerphone for handsfree conversation when you’re busy doing something else when a call comes in. You can also avoid calls from strangers via the Caller ID functionality. Other features include three-way calling, call transfer between handsets, and different ring tones in order to let you know whether somebody is calling you via the regular phone line or using Skype to contact you. The PHIP65 is currently available for $129.99 at specific retailers.
